I'll bet some people thought that I had abandoned my blog. I'm a little shocked to see how long it's been since I posted. I thought it was last summer. Nope. It was August of 2014.
I'm not one to post for the sake of posting. I like to have something worthwhile to share, so I often go for long periods without blogging. There are some things that I've been meaning to post, and I hope to get to them before long.
In December of 2014 I was hit by a car. It was a very gentle collision. The car began to back up as I was walking behind it and I was knocked down. Unfortunately, I twisted my back and spent about six months going to the chiropractor and sitting around. I wasn't able to ski or play tennis. You'd think that I would have caught up on my blogging. Maybe I should have.
Instead, I started knitting "seriously." I've been knitting off and on since I was a kid. About every ten years I'd start up again. Because I had nobody to help me, I'd get frustrated and give up within a month or two. This time, I have a friend who loves to knit and she has become my mentor. I joined a knitting group and a knitting forum. Whenever I run into a problem, I just go online and watch videos. I am amazed at how it's all come together for me!
So that's where I've been all this time. But stay tuned because I'm writing a new tutorial. This one is for making knitting stitch markers with jewelry supplies.
